I have tried everything you state to delete my web and app activity – step by step and letter by letter. It does NOT work on my samsung phone using the android system! It’s that cut & dried. All the dates and places I’ve visited are ALL in my phone STILL. Why does this not work? Why can my phone not ‘open’ the functions and images related to the deleting function, dates/times to delete, and other related issues to complete this task? All I get is sent back to the primary page showing the steps to take and images that should be seen once opened – I don’t get these things/don’t get this far. Why? What is wrong with my phone? it’s settings? or what am I doing wrong? Why not send a representative “geek” (meant respectfully) to see this problem phone not working as it should and walk me through this ‘easy-by-the-letter’ process? My phone (or myself) NOT working as everybody else’s does is almost a “Twilight Zone episode” situation. Please help me. Dan O.
